If the Orlando shooter was "mentally unstable" couldn't you say most criminals are mentally unstable by that standard?

I would say 99% of criminals are mentally unstable. They ignore societal norms, written laws and have a disregard for others. The 1% would be those cases of desperation or "passion" which is typically a form of temporary mental instability. Stealing food to avoid starvation, more of the true 1% for example.

Nope. Being in your right mind means you understand and can rationally chose to obey the law where there are no punishment consequences. Choosing to break means you are intentionally choosing to risk being caught. Joining a gang?!?!? If voluntary, you are insane. If compelled due to the alternative of being victimized by the gang, that's the 1%

The discussion with you is over. I'm sorry I wasted my time, anticipating a good discussion and dialogue.
